Useful Content for the "Ultimative OFFIMG"

Post by deetee » Mon Jul 22, 2019 6:51 am

Hi there!

The OFFIMG of the DM42 can be more than a nice feature. I'm thinking of an useful cheatsheet with useful content and would like to draw "the ultimative OFFIMG" (which is impossible because of different demands of different users).

So which content can be useful for a typical DM42 user?

* Is it some info like on the backside of an 15c (commands like ISG, error messages, character codes)?
* Is it some math or technical formula or some constants or conversion rules?
* Is it some graph (trigonometric circle) or even an ASCII table (see attachment)?
* Can it be something completely different, but an useful add on feature to the calculator (I like the ruler idea - see attachment)?

Do you have some ideas or wishes?

Regards
deetee

After doing a lot of programming I saw that much information about the DM42 is in the help-file. But I really missed the character table/codes.

So I decided to use an extended (including 0...31) and bigger (bad eyes) character/ascii table.

In addition to the ruler I implemented some kind of angle meter to measure some gradients. See also the tiny markers on the long side for angles > 30 degrees.
